Belgium: Journalist falls for Hamas 'dam plot' story

Werner Trio, a journalist for Belgian broadcaster VRT, posted a "evil Israel plot" story on Facebook in which Hamas claimed that Israel deliberately opened dams in order to flood Gaza.   See more about the dam story here.

If Trio gets his information from an impartial pro-Palestinian news site like Middle East Monitor and believes every conspiracy plot they propagate, what does that say about his personal beliefs and about his reporting?

Middle East Monitor, btw, purports to quote an Israeli newspaper to prove its point.  But all Israeli news sites I checked reported the Hamas claims for what they were: trying to blame the Jews for the weather.
